Resource Exchange Materials on Stage in NYC!
There's a new production playing at Theatre Row on 42nd St. in NYC...and it features a prop that was diverted from landfill by The Resource Exchange! Set designer for Like Money in the Bank, Joseph Napolitano, purchased a reclaimed 1900s radio that he found here at the re. They refurbished it for the production, which is a period piece that takes place during the Progressive Era, described as "the first ever romantic comedy about the founding of the Federal Reserve Bank." When he isn't designing theatre sets (take a peek at this 1/4" model of the set!), Joseph works for the Broadway Green Alliance. "I am delighted by any form of creative reuse," says Joseph. "An important part of my personal process is the use of sustainable practices in the studio, as well as during construction, so I traveled to PA looking to source materials with a former life." We're so glad that Joseph and the Like Money in the Bank team were able to find a reuse for one of our vintage radios while they were visiting Philly. Catch the show at Theatre Row in NYC through April 22nd.
